Without travel or a traditional week off, Alternative Spring Break serves local community

Thursday, April 15, 2021

For Alternative Spring Break, spring break usually provides an opportunity for students to engage in week-long service-learning projects outside Charlottesville. With the University’s nixing of a week-long break period this academic year, ASB was forced to adapt — especially when considering the University’s emphasis on limited travel. ASB used this challenge as an opportunity to foster stronger connections with local programs, recentering their organization’s goals towards applying service learning directly to the Charlottesville community.
